Pinellas County commissioners met last week to discuss matters relating to transportation, including a review of the many projects currently taking place. David Gwynn, Florida Department of Transportation secretary for District 7, stated that today’s motorists want additional options for travel to reduce congestion.

Three big “interstate modernization projects” include construction of a new Howard Frankland Bridge, which does not currently meet FDOT’s design and safety policy, Gateway Expressway and I-275 Pinellas Corridor.
